Each chapter of The Digital Consumer Technology Handbook follows a logical progression from a general overview of each device, to market dynamics, to the core technologies and components that make up that particular product. The book thoroughly covers key digital consumer product categories including digital TV, digital audio, mobile communications devices, gaming consoles, DVD players, PCs and peripherals, display devices, digital imaging devices, web terminals and pads, PDAs and other handhelds, screenphones/videophones, telematics, eBooks, and other current and future products. Early indications, based on sales at Fry's Electronics, suggest the handbook will receive a strong market reception.

“Xilinx maintains a detailed understanding of the many markets where Xilinx products are being used, including the digital consumer market,” said Robert Bielby, senior director of Strategic Solutions Marketing for Xilinx. “We put that knowledge to work by delivering tools such as this handbook and our eSP web portal to provide comprehensive resources for designers of today's leading-edge consumer products.”
